Seeing a Goblin with an Orc willingly is a rare sight to behold, as they’re usually herded as slaves by the brutish race.

Goblins can adapt to different environments over the course of a month, changing appearances and builds to better suit their surroundings. i.e. Skin color to blend in, webbed fingers and toes to swim, or greater vision in the dark.
